Irish Cup holders Waringstown have been drawn away to Eglinton in the second round of the Irish Cup this Sunday.

Eglinton are one of just two North West survivors in the competition. The other club, Fox Lodge, are at home to one of the tournament favourites, YMCA.

Of the other NCU teams still in the competition, Instonians have a tough home tie against Pembroke at Shaw’s Bridge. The Dubliners were beaten in last year’s semi-finals.
